What day is the Passover upon?

Scripture shows us that Passover is upon the 14th day after the new moon, in the evening.  It can be held in the first month or the second month. Here are ten witnesses of this:

 

Exodus 12:6,11
6 Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.
11 And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is Yahuwah’s Passover.

4 ‘These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times.
